About Warhammer® 40,000™: Dawn of War® II

About this game

Developed by award winning studio Relic Entertainment, Dawn of War II ushers in a new chapter in the acclaimed RTS series – taking players to the brutal frontlines of war to lead an Elite Strike Force on a mission to save the galaxy.

It’s the 41st Millennium in the Sub-Sector Aurelia – a cluster of worlds on the edge of the galaxy – where a battle of epic proportions is about to commence. Ancient races will clash across the planets that dot this sector of space, battling for the greatest of stakes – not only for control of Sub-Sector Aurelia – but the fate of each race.

With a focus on fast-action RTS gameplay, Dawn of War II brings to life the science fiction universe of Warhammer 40,000 like never before. Experience the intimate brutality of battle as you play through your chosen race’s epic campaign. Clash with the enemies on battlefield ablaze with visceral melee and ranged combat. Lead and develop your squads from raw recruits into the most battle hardened veterans in the galaxy. Also included is The Last Stand, a co-operative game mode featuring user controlled heroes fighting waves of enemies.


  • Brutal Frontline Action & Tactics
    Get straight into the action to experience intense melee and devastating ranged combat. Use vicious melee sync-kills to obliterate your enemies. Outsmart your opponents using dynamic and destructible environments to suppress, flank and destroy your foes.

  • Non-Linear Single Player Campaign
    Command an elite strike force, developing the skills and abilities of your squads and commander as you progress through the game.

  • Co-Op Multiplayer
    Play through the entire single player campaign co-operatively with a friend, at any point in the game, anytime.

  • Next Generation RTS Engine
    Utilizing Relic's proprietary Essence Engine 2.0 Dawn of War II delivers cinematic visuals, detailed graphics and amazing special effects.

It’s a pretty good game, it also being on sale is always nice. Warhammer games are usually worth your time even if you aren’t aware of them or have never played them

From a fun and fast-paced RTS series (OG DoW) to a real-time tactics squad-based strategy game. Oh well, at least it looks pretty. Not my cup of tea, but hey, still good on its own.
